FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR ALASKA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ANCHORAGE AK
ISSUED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FAIRBANKS AK
347 PM AKDT WED JUL 27 2016

.DISCUSSION...
RAIN AND SHOWERS WILL BE FAIRLY COMMON ACROSS SOUTHWEST AK WITH
THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN CHANGING. EXPECT THE THERMAL TROUGH TO
REDEVELOP ALONG THE ALASKA RANGE ON THU. FLOW BECOMES NORTHWEST
AS A TROUGH MOVES ACROSS THE REGION. EXPECT RAIN AND SHOWERS AS IT
INTERACTS WITH THE MOIST AND UNSTABLE AIR ASSOCIATED WITH THE
THERMAL TROUGH. THIS WILL PROVIDE A SLIGHT CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND
EVENING WET THUNDERSTORMS CLOSE TO THE ALASKA RANGE.
